Great TR.

A bunch of my friends were all the Falcons @ 20/1 from way back, so they were all pretty sick, too.

Awesome TR! That SB party at the Wynn looked super fun, prolly beat me standing 4 hours in the kitchen to cook and bake for our party.

Had money on Atlanta covering the spread and on the under 59. Looked really good for a long time..

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Thanks for the compliments. Trying to catch up to present day so i dont forget the drunken times.
Great view from balcony



Got pretty drunk that night, saw the high limit lounge on the 2nd floor of cosmo and had to try it out, bought in 1k, left with 2k



Just need to put this out there, im not big on posting on public forums but do like my friends to get updates, remember it myself, and always appreciate any advice on here. I do not like personal info out there but if any sum ***** wanna be thiefs out there wanna give me a try, you are better off gambling at that stupid big wheel they have at every casino. Been training martial arts since I was 10 and I never leave the hotel I am staying at with any cash anyways. Got a credit line at every casino I play at and credit any winnings.

We went to eat, couldnt pass by the high limit lounge without playing again, plan was for one and done, got very lucky on a double down



Went to play at PH, pretty lit. I go all in after the turn in about a $300 pot. A girl ask me to show after she folds. I said well, I tipped the dealer 5 bucks, if you wanna give her a good tip on top of that I will show. She threw 2 bucks at the dealer. I said that is only worth one card, flipped over top pair and that must have had her beat cause she didnt even care about seeing the other card, but this sum ***** that wasnt even in the hand goes ballistic claiming I have to show both cards cause I said I would or something. We argued a bit, then Focker called floor and they said no he doesnt of course. He just goes nuts until he is asked to leave or leaves on his own, not sure. He was by cashier and I went up there a few minutes later for something else, he is still argguing with floor and screams sveral times "Get the Fock away from me" I just shrug and flop down against the counter. he yaps and yells til floor got between him and me and in true middle school fashion he acts like he wants to charge at me now that someone can hold him back. The floor guy is a friend and asked me respectfully to walk away, and I said yeah, then that dude said something like you better walk away, and i just couldnt take it as drunk as I was. Floor said man, please go back to your table and I said I'm going to play black jack (which I did eventually and wished I hadnt) I stepped one foot out of the poker room and waited for him. everyone was watching cause the guy was screaming and hollerin the whole time. I was never going to fight the guy, I just knew he was bluffing and I bluffed over the top of his tough guy bs. I followed him a good ways and told him to find Jesus the whole time. several people poured out of poker to watch. I went to black jack like i said, lost $1500 which serves my drunk butt right for feeding into that crap. just cant help it sometimes when I get to drinkin. Hit up cosmo pizza and was done.

Next day, Tuesday I felt like crap. All friends left so I am running solo now. Hit up the spa at Cosmo and it wasnt bad but compared to Aria's I would much rather take the short walk to it.


Never had their buffet, it was pretty good





Havent been to the Rhino in years, but there is a girl that works their that I love, she wasnt there nor was any other good talent. It was slow so girls were really aggressive grabbing me, making me feel like they were gonna pick pocket me or something. I didnt stay long.
Met a local friend and played 1/3 at Encore. I know the late shift employees there well and they were surprised to see me sober. some were disappointed I wasnt drinking, some were very relieved. Kay the dealer is hilarious. Why you not drinking slim? get slim drink. I get asked to leave from there often when I am drinking. Did pretty good, bought in 300 left with about 1k and called it a night

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

arthurbach, I've played with you a few times at PH. You are crazy. Lol.

Played with you one time back in December 2015 I think at PH when it was still by Earl. You had all these hooker cards on you and you called up one and demanded they meet you at the poker room instead of your room.

Pretty amazing life you live. A true degen. You liven up every game you're in.

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Wednesday all friends had left and I was running solo. It was time to move to PH but it was hard to say goodbye to that room at cosmo so I got hooked up with another night on casino rate at only $220 to keep it for another night.

Got another stretch session that had me feeling relaxed and ready for a nap. Got out later, stopped in high limit room with initial plan to be one and done, but that didnt happen after losing first hand. did go on a nice run. ended up buying in 1500, left with 3500 and a free cup of soup



I walked all back in that high limit room, it was huge and very nice, but wasnt a soul anywhere. Seems like a waste of a nice, expensive area





Played sober poker at PH later, nothing major happened that I can remember

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Thurs. (yesterday at moment) moved into PH. $20 trick got me a remodeled resort room. I have always loved the location and the vibe of Planet Hollywood but the rooms were kinda grungy. Its nice that they remodeled and painted over all that stained in sin. She said the room she had was a smoking room but had just been completed last eek so it still smells new.











I hardly ever get sick but all this alcohol and lack of sleep didnt help me contacting something just a littl, not bad, but need to stay away from alcohol yil i beat it so this trip has def been slower paced than normal. Figured I would go to the spa. Someone had told/lied that Caesars palace spa was better than Aria's so I tried it out. mistake. $50 and it sucked compared to Aria. It smelled bad too. They do have the best sportsbook I think though




If at first you don't succeed.....



left there and went to the new in and out burger. If they had these Where I lived I would have a few clogged arteries



got back to PH and place a bet on Duke, placed more online and took em to win championship at 12-1. moved to 8-1 after the win last night.



Went over to Encore for a bit, walked to Venetian to eat a great salad at Luxx. stopped by poker room for a second. Saw a friend and he drove me back to Bellagio proceeded to lose about 200 on video poker with this hand just being so close it is frustrating



took some nyquil, slept, woke up took a klonopin, slept more and have caught up to make this thread current for friends back home. This maybe the most boring 3 days I have had in Vegas due to trying to beat this cold but its Friday, I think have this cold beat and now its time to get loose

HA!!! I remember that, thanks man



I have done this a few times but if this is the time I'm thinking about, I called all 4. One went to the room and woke my friends up. The other showed up at poker room and was not the girl in the pic AT ALL. I said you are not in the girl in the pic, she says yes I am. I was hammered and wanted to verify. I had thrown the cards in the trash already and she just shook her head while she watched me peddle through the trash. I found the card and held it up to her face. I said if thats you then I'm Michael Jordan. She said yeah, so what you wanna have some fun? I said well it would be hard for me to have fun with someone who i know is a.... LIAR..... She started to walk away and was mad, mad, mad. she called her pimp or something saying he was gonna kick my ass if i didnt give her a "traveling fee" or something i said tell him to kick away, this place is has cameras everywhere and I am very litigious. Tell him to rough me up so I can break even this trip. She got frustrated and left. I told her to find Jesus as she walked away

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Met friends for dinner at Encore, for some reason they wanted to play poker at Rio. It seems like a nice big property that would be great if it were on the strip, but a waste at its location. Games looked bad, didnt stay. Stopped in at Aria, saw the guy who has all the guns and every other thing a hetero male would want





My buddy triple dog dared me to go in that Ivey room or whatever its called and have a seat, so I respectfully did and if they woulda let me buy in for what I had, I surely would have played a few hands. Walked up to a seat, asked anyone sitting here? Some dude sternly says..SEAT'S TAKEN. I said well my name's Forrest, Forrest Gump, nice to meet you too

Went to PH and was gonna try not to drink, but a friend convinced me and here we go. I dont think I showed my ass too much in there. Went back to Aria, for some reason played 5/10. There was this dude that kept trying to convince me to go to a gay club or something. Seinfeld disclaimer..... I think I made a small amount at poker




a local female friend was supposed to come drag me off that table and get breakfast but my stubborness kept me there til 10 or so. Went to Cafe Aria and on the way went on a horrible roulette run. lost all I had cashed from poker. Oh well, had a great breakfast, that filet mignon crab benedict is bomb



My dumb ass couldnt just go to bed, was gonna try and place 800 on black jack, and let it ride twice. won first hand, lost 2nd

I think I am in chase mode and about to get stupid. Might as well go big on one game tomorrow. Any suggestions for which one to go with are apppreciated

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Just can't do it like I used to, slowed down the drinking and havent taken any aderrall this trip. (i have prescription but never take it, get wired when I do) This trip has been uneventful compared to most but I have still enjoyed it.

Sat. night I thought I'd get loose. Started playing at PH. Saw a friend Terrance, he is a trip and it is a debate among employees who raises more hades in there between me and him. Started drinking hard.

There is a dancer there that is absolutely stunning and everyone loves. I give her money often because the way I stare I would feel guilty if I didnt. Was looking to be a great night, when I decided to get a massage by a girl who is the best I have had. She put me out. It was so good I thought I was gonna throw up and pass out.


Went to room, thought I would lay in bed a minute, got a call from a dealer about 5 hours later telling me I had chips down there. Wasted a good Sat night. went to Cosmo, eggslut then saw this weirdo standing motionless on
the bridge.



Went back to sleep and didnt wake up til the afternoon. I am getting old

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Yesterday got out late, hit up Encore poker, it was kinda slow. Didnt play but hit up Black jack, ran 400 to 2k



Went to Rhino, a dancer I have known a long time was there, between her and another vixen I spent about $400 that place can be a real racket. Overall the talent just isn't what it used to be there. Went to Aria high limit for a drink and thought I would try to win money I spent at Rhino on a hand of black jack. Often this spells disaster but I won and stopped. Thought I would play poker for just a few mins but ended up ggetting drunk and stayed til probably 9:30am, had a good session, fun crowd.



Was discussing with a local friend dumping on the warriors/nugggets under 240. Shoulda placed bet then but we went to the breakfast buffet at Aria, it was really good


I absolutely can not stand this sum *****. He's out there all the time with some loud ass speaker playing some crap noone wants to hear.

Nuggets set the record for 3s in a game, Lovely. Doubled down online at halftime, tried to place a halftime bet at sportsbook too but was a little late. Got lucky with the live wagering.



The new Cosmo sportsbook is great

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Gonna try and finish this and report the last few nights the best I can remember, it got crazy to say the least. I cant report everything because I still need to talk to a manager about some issues. I was asked to leave somewhere and the only reason I could think of is that the people around me were laughing too loud or something. I was drunk, no doubt but when I take my prescribed Addy I can control the drunkedness pretty good. I asked several other employees that were there could they tell me anything I did that would warrant me getting asked to leave and noone could come up with anything. I will deal with this but I'm not gonna post a one sided story on a forum before I hear what mgt of this place has to say.

Mon night I played that video black jack machine at PH. Besides paying 6/5 b jack its not bad. I save a bunch not tipping the dealer and its probably great at running your tier score up. Ran 98.50 to 798.50





Went over to Encore poker and started drinking. I always feel very welcome there and the staff is awesome. Many were happy to see me drinking. I got pretty loose but can't remember a whole lot. Bought in for $300, did pretty well there


But... before my uber arrived I thought I would play one hand of b jack for $500... lost 4 in a row for 2k, then a last one for $700. Played good poker for hours to turn a good profit then blow twice that in seconds. Degen life

Went over to Aria, sat at a black jack table my buddy was dealing at. A larger black guy comes up and we both play the new shoot. A new female dealer takes over, we were both doing well. Me and the black dude got along real well and were having fun. Once when I doubled down I asked dealer, can I get it face down... like my dates. Me and the other dude laughed and she seemed pissed and kept looking at me in disgust. I asked whats wrong (I had been tipping her very well all along without her showing a bit of pleasantry or personality) she said she was offended by my face down comment and it was offensive to women. I said in a very sissy voice... now how do you know I was talking about women??? We laughed, she didn't. I immediately apologized profusely and tried to explain it was a crack on myself, because I am ugly and that the only women that will engage with me usually have no respect for themselves and look worse than a mud fence. That didnt help, she just seemed like a bitter person. I apologized again, to bad looks as an only response. I whispered to the black guy, well the tipometer just took a hard left, we laughed a lot. He was cool, we both went on a nice run there. I understand why tips are pooled, but she is a good argument for why they should not be. Even before my "offensive" comment she just was not nice or fun at all while she ends up making the same as a dealer who tries hard to make the players happy.




A lot of other crap happened later that I really cant post on here (personal friends remind me to tell), but wound up at PH and was coming off a win, bought a few sandwiches for whoever was there. Earl for breakfast is the bomb. Love the late night staff at PH



Had one more night to go and I was up pretty good, maybe 5 or 6k (not counting Matt Ryan bets) plus everything I had spent and tipped for 2 weeks. ( a bunch) I don't think I had a single losing session at poker and that is crazy rare for me.
Shoulda took it easy the next night but of course that didnt happen
